UPDATE YOUR LINKEDIN PROFILE

If your business offers goods or services to other businesses (B2B), then you really want to be on LinkedIn as well - it is the perfect place to make meaningful business connections.

 

Don't think of it as just a place to post your cv or find a new job, it really is so much more than that!

POST SOME GOOD OLD-FASHIONED SNAIL-MAIL

Not everyone is online, so there's still room for good, old fashioned mail through the post. Think outside of the square - how could you get your letter to stand out to potential clients if they received it amongst a pile of bills? 

It would be easy for costs to sky-rocket here, so it's good to do your research first and to get lots of quotes!.

GET OUT AND NETWORK, NETWORK, NETWORK!

Online AND offline. Get out there, and get known as the go to person for your area of expertise. 

Prepare an elevator pitch, pack some business cards, and go for it. 

Keep in mind, the object of networking is not to sell, but to form connections with potential clients.

BUILD YOUR EMAIL LISTS

By building lists of contacts through your networking and social media, you will have a way to keep in front of prospective clients, so when they are ready to buy - you are the first person they think of.

With programs like MailChimp, mass emailing has never been so easy.
